iPhone5 Lightning adaptor w/Pioneer drops GPS

Postby gldelx » Sat Mar 02, 2013 6:01 pm

I've posted this on Apple's support forum as well, but thought there was more likelihood of someone here having a similar setup and issue/solution.
I have a Pioneer AVIC-X930BT http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Car/GPS-Navigation/AVIC-X930BT with the 30-pin iPod/iPhone adaptor CD-IU51V http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Portable/iPod-And-Bluetooth-Accessories/CD-IU51V in my car.

I upgraded my iPhone4 to iPhone5 back in October and started using Waze about the same time. Since my commute is generally an hour+ each way, and I was ending up with a totally dead battery by the end of the day, I bought the Apple Lightning 30-pin adaptor after a couple months. I started noticing my GPS signal being dropped from anywhere from a few seconds to the entire drive so reinstalled iOS and it still did the same so took it into Apple and they decided after looking at the error logs it had a bad GPS antenna and replaced the phone. New phone does the same and I then realized it only does this when plugged in. I've tried to re-create this with the Lightning/30Pin when plugged in inside but can't. Only when in the car.
So if I reliably want to use Waze, I can't have it charging. :(
Have others powering an iPhone5 thru a Pioneer noticed this?

as much as I'd like to blame ATT, I don't think they have anything to do with it ;)
I assume the Pioneer cord has power spikes or something that jolt the GPS antenna

Without taking the dash out of the car and getting access to the USB on the other end of the pioneer adaptor cable, this is the only option in the car.

I am noticing the same on my iPhone 5 when plugged in during the commute with the lighting adapter charging my device through my USB in the car then the GPS loses signal. It also does the same thing on my PC when the device is charging. Something definitely is not right. Waze works fine as long as I don't charge my phone. iOS Maps and Google Maps work regardless of charging state.

When you write "USB in the car" is that a simple charger only or is it a USB connection to the stereo as well?

Mine stall out on all, but it's not as noticeable in the other apps since they don't have a banner that says the GPS signal was dropped like Waze provides.

Alan,

Appradio has a cable that has 2 purposes. HDMI output to the stereos screen, and that standard '30 pin USB stuff'. Like charging, controlling the music app, etc. it all just happens to be one cable. (One very thick monster of a cable)
iPhone 4 (AT&T GSM)
iOS 6.0.1 - nonjailbroken
Waze - 3.5.1.998

Is there an app similar to GPS Essentials for iOS? It'd be useful as a test app to see what's going on when you connect to the radio.
